My Turtle Pincushion Collection

I have been off the the grid here all week. It's not because of anything technical, its just that I have been busy doing heaven knows what. I have nothing to show for all my busyness. So I thought I would share my pincushions I have collected. "The man of the place" loves turtles and because he loves them I figure I would share in his love.  I believe in if I am to collect anything, it has to be something that is hard to find so that way I will not end up with a lot of it. I just do not have the room
Plus I hate to dust.

Here is some of my turtles,
 His head and tail bobs up and down.

I think this one is a french turtle, the hat.

Me and "the man of the place", so sweet isn't it.

This one is only 2 inches long. So cute.

I am always on the look out for more.

Till next time

  2. Those pincushions are just soooooooooooo adorable!

  3. I Love your turttles. I have the first one - 'bobbing turttle'
    There is a Lefton turttle you might need to find ;-)
    Thank you for sharing!

  4. I have been around along time, but never saw a collection of turtle pin cushions. That is so neat and they do not take up a lot of space.

  5. What a fun collection. I may have found a new love for turtles. :) ~Kelly

  6. I have never seen a turtle pin cushion before! I am going to pin this to my pincushion board on Pinterest!

  7. What a neat collection of pincushions. Turtles are a popular subject for so many things...I'm not surprised to see them as pin cushions. I'll be watching for them now, too!

  8. Who knew? I've never noticed turtles before (I'm a frog person) - cute collection. I agree about the dusting thing.

  9. I can imagine these are hard to find! My favorite is the one made from the beautiful shell-I have some of these my Dad brought back to Aus. from New Guinea after WW2.


Welcome friends to share a thought, I enjoy reading them and will try my best to reply back by email most of the time. But if you do not hear back it's because you are a no-reply blogger.
